With A Touch Of A Button, This Mobile House Builds Itself In Under Ten Minutes
By Izza Sofia, 13 Jul 2017
A building that builds itself at the touch of a button? Now that is something truly impressive.
UK-based company Ten Fold Engineering has developed a ready-to-use, relocatable structure that self-deploys and can be used for a variety of functions, including as mobile homes, offices, clinics, shops, exhibitions, restaurants, and schools.
Requiring no machinery, labor, or a foundation, Ten Fold’s buildings unfurl in under ten minutes and just as easily fold back in on itself.
What is even more impressive is its size. Each structure pops open to three times its transport size to measure at 64 square meters, or approximately 689 square feet. Internal walls can be moved and arranged according to preference, making it highly adaptable. They can also be stacked and have the potential to go fully off-grid by way of solar panels.
Ten Fold’s structures start at US$129,000. To learn more, head over to their website.
